MIPTV Spotlight: Breakthrough Entertainment


CANNES: Women around the world who are breaking ground in male-dominated fields are the focus of Wonder Women, a highlight for Breakthrough Entertainment.

“They are adventurers, heroes, trailblazers and explorers,” says Caroline Tyre, the senior director of international sales and acquisitions at Breakthrough Entertainment.

The company is also promoting Breaking Bread with Brooke Burke. The titular host, of Dancing with the Stars fame, visits her famous friends, preparing meals with them and sharing memories of food and family. “This isn’t just your regular cooking show,” says Tyre. “It focuses on a holistic approach, from growing your own vegetable garden to the love you put into your meal preparation in the kitchen and the company you share it with.”

Meanwhile, Sarah Sharratt navigates her way through her new life in rural France in Uprooted, another highlight.

“In a crowded marketplace, we’ve focused on premium content that breaks through the noise,” Tyre says.
